CNY shopping at FOX Kids & Baby

Chinese New Year has always been one of my favourite festivals and most eagerly anticipated occasions of the year. While I used to make it a point to get new clothes for myself, I now have another priority on my list and that is to get new clothes for the kids. It's amazing how motherhood changes your focus in life, isn't it? Yes I know that, I gave up a job to be a stay-at-home mum, you see.

Last Saturday, we were thrilled to be invited on a CNY shopping spree at FOX Kids & Baby at City Square Mall and had lots of fun meeting up with fellow bloggers and choosing beautiful outfits for the girls from the latest spring/summer collection 2014.

Having stayed in Sweden for over four years, I almost forgot how good it felt to be able to wear out lightweight dresses, tank tops and short skirts when you go house visiting. I personally loved the bright and appealing colours of the new collection and was pleased to see that FOX offered different types of clothings including dresses, cardigans, skirts, pants, shoes, long-sleeved and sleeveless tops. 
 
In fact, I was spoilt for choice when trying to mix and match and couldn't make my final decision. Therefore, I had to rope in my fashion advisor who was more than happy and willing to pick her own sets of clothes.

She tried on a few pieces and merely took a few minutes to decide on what she wanted. The dress that she loved most was this one above with the white top and floral bottom, which she likes to call it 'the ballet dress' because she felt like so pretty in it when she tried to do a pirouette. It was quite heartening to see her big smile and how she stayed faithful to this dress throughout the whole session.

Sometimes, it can be a good thing to know that your child is growing up and learning to voice out her opinions, isn't it? Even if sometimes you might not agree on things, at least you know that she is slowly but surely developing her character and learning to distinguish between her likes and her dislikes. As tempting as it is, don't make her dislike something just because you don't like it. As much as we need respect, I think our kids need a little of that too.

Woohoo! Time for the photoshoot so that the girls can be featured on FOX Fashion Singapore's Facebook page. With the husband leaving for work halfway, I was initially apprehensive if the baby was going to cooperate with me because guess what, she refused to participate in any photo shoot on the cruise we went during Christmas without me by her side and would bawl the moment I put her down. Separation anxiety to the max.

Thankfully, we survived this photoshoot and although I didn't manage to make her smile, at least she wasn't crying and was looking at the camera long enough to get some beautiful shots of the sisters in their newest outfits.

For the big sister, well, posing seems to be a breeze for her these days and I thought she looked lovely in these solo shots too.

Here's wishing everyone a Happy Lunar New Year in advance, with love from Angel and Ariel!

From now till 23 Jan, you can vote for Angel and Ariel in the Spring/Summer collection on FOX Fashion Singapore's Facebook page. Actually, I'd rather you vote for the CNY FOX Kids outfit you like best from the album and voters stand a chance to win $100 FOX CNY wardrobe and a Canon Selphy Photo Printer. 



Shopping has never been happier with two lovely girls for me to doll up. I can't wait for CNY to come, how about you?


Disclosure: We were invited to an exclusive preview of the new collection at FOX Kids and Baby and the girls received two sets of outfits each for Chinese New Year. No monetary compensation received, yes we bought the shades ourselves, and all opinions are our own.
